AT A meeting in Lisbon, experts expressed concern over the levels of sardines in the waters off Spain and Portugal.

According to the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), the number of sardines has experienced a sharp decline in the last few decades.

Experts claimed figures have been below biological safety limits since 2009, and demand from Spanish and Portuguese fishing fleets continues to outstrip natural fish breeding levels.  ICES are now warning the two countries must come up with a plan to allow stock levels to rise again and in particular to protect younger fish.
